Effects of overexpression/silencing of miR-17-5p and miR-106b-5p on TRIM8 and p21 expression and cell proliferation. a, c, e, f Expression levels of TRIM8 and p21 were measured by RT-qPCR in HK-2, RCC-Shaw and HCT116 cells transfected with Negative Control miRNA Mimic, miR-17-5p or miR-106b-5p (alone or together) anti-miR-17-5p or anti-miR-106b-5p (alone or together). Relative expression ratios were measured respect to the sample transfected with the Negative Control miRNA Mimic and normalized by the expression levels of RPL13 (* p-value < 0.01; ** p-value < 0.005). b, d Cell proliferation was measured by MTT reduction assay in HK-2, RCC-Shaw and HCT116 transfected with Negative Control miRNA Mimic, miR-17-5p or miR-106b-5p (alone or together), anti-miR-17-5p or anti-miR-106b-5p (alone or together). Measurements were normalized respect to the sample transfected with the Negative Control miRNA Mimic. Data are shown as the average with standard deviation of at least 3 independent experiments (** p-value < 0.005; *** p-value < 0.001)
